The new Australian Digital Technologies Curriculum for years 7-10 is very broad, covering electronic systems, data analysis, robotics and programming. This workshop is designed to address all of these categories with one technology: Arduino. Arduino is a microcontroller (a small programmable computer) which can easily be used to add intelligence to electric circuits. Over the two day workshop 3rd you will learn to do all of the listed activities and also receive the resources to repeat them with your class:

  • Program musical instruments with sensor inputs (piano and Theremin)
  • Create circuits to respond to any infra-red remote (e.g. TV or data projector)
  • Write programs that navigate an Arduino based robot M-Bot around an obstacle circuit.
  • Write programs for the M-bot which get the robot to automatically detect and avoid objects.

NOTE: Classroom cost of Arduino kits ranges from $25-50 per student and the cost of one single Mbot is $150 (one robot per 2 students is sufficient).
